Hi,

I need som ehelp in creating 2 powershell script or 1 script with both changes coded.

I need a script that changes home folder and local path on a list of AD usernames,
from a file usernames.txt, where they are stored seperated by comma's.

I also need a script, which when run moved the usernames from the txt file, from one OU to another OU.
(From a OU with folder redirection enabled to a OU with redirection disabled)

I have made a mockup of what i need the script to do with the folder issue,
because it would be easier for me to explain this way.

Please see the mockup here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i12tipngi78rap6/Change_Needed_Home_folder.jpg?dl=0
and then the script with the OU move from the same usernams.txt file.

I am willing to pay a charge for help on these scripts, so i hope you/someone can help me on this.?

Best regards

Best regards

Hi Brian,

To continue where we left of.

A payment is not needed. If I can help you we can all benefit for the knowledge of everyone. That's also the power in Powershell.

For your first quest I have tested this script and it works like a charm. If you want, you can test it with a short list of test users if you want to.

# First, change the usernames.txt to one username per line

# If there is a wrong username in the list, continue with the next one.
$ErrorActionPreference = 'SilentlyContinue'

#get the usernames from the file and store them in the $users variable
$users = Get-Content -Path 'C:\temp\usernames.txt'

#run the command for each user in the variable.
foreach ($user in $users)
{
	Set-ADUser -Identity $user -Clear homedirectory
}

Basically you can use the same script to move the users. If you want you can combine the two in one script but to make it a bit more readable for you (to learn) I have put it in a separate script.

Just adjust the line with $targetOU = 'OU=ouname,DC=company,DC=net' to something for the location the users must be in.

# First, change the usernames.txt to one username per line

#setting a variable for the OU
$targetOU = 'OU=ouname,DC=company,DC=net'

# If there is a wrong username in the list, continue with the next one.
$ErrorActionPreference = 'SilentlyContinue'

#get the usernames from the file and store them in the $users variable
$users = Get-Content -Path 'C:\temp\usernames.txt'

#run the command for each user in the variable.
foreach ($user in $users)
{
	Get-ADUser -Identity $user | Move-ADObject -TargetPath $targetOU
	
}

Hi Albert,
Thank you so much,

I will try to test the scripts on a testdomain and get back to you on this 🙂

Best regards
